area hospitals with breathing difficulties. >> opec ministers keeping output ceiling at 30 million bar. a day prices are relatively high. the average cost of the group's oil produced by opec countries has been about $100 a barrel for two years. that's a first of opec's history here in the u.s. believe it or not we have a glut of u.s. crude it is around $86 a barrel. dozens more in analysts saying that he thinks the u.s. crude could drop to $50 a barrel. why not why not a huge drop in gas prices? we don't have enough refineries. there has been a new refinery built the u.s. in 1976. all the soil is not backing up at u.s. refineries. >> detectives of pleasant hill say copycat criminal may be to blame for the latest by bomb incident outside a school there. a pipe bomb some outside pleasant hill and the school yesterday. it did not go off and will start. this pipe bomb case marks the second three days. on saturday battles look this mailbox, a short time later officers as mantle another pipe bomb and arrested three things. at this point they're not linking the case to the one of the elementa
with all the tension going on at the opec meeting in vienna now. you know, wti higher by 41 cents. 86.20 per barrel. london, 108.53. a gain of.5%. the treasuries and ten-year yield now is -- very close to 1.7%. decline of 1/8 point. the dollar is mixed across the board. 82.84 for every dollar. the pound would cost you $1.61. the price of gold this hour is higher by $5.20. a gain of .3%, 1,714 per ounce. time for the global markets report. kelly evans is standing by in london. >> michelle, hello. >> you might be here 12-12-2110. >> i think the date is 1221? today is 12-12. 12-21 it when the world ends. i think we've only got nine days left of the global market report. >> i'm worried about the fiscal cliff -- once we get the world -- which is worse? the world ending or the fiscal cliff? >> about the same i think. >> one could bring about the other. >> i think it's no accident they're both approaching. that's how i'm going to read the tea leaves. as you see, a mixed picture this morning. people mostly waiting on the fed decision later today. the major boards green, the ftse adding .25%.
is controlled by the opec cartel, meets twice a year to establish quotas in order to keep prices at an acceptable level for the opec exporters. the national oil companies of opec and other countries around the world hold the vast majority of oil reserves. they produced only about 40% of the world petroleum every day. there's a chart that shows this graphically. if there is ever an example of a market that is not free, it is that. nobody acts in that matter in a purely free-market. if opec were doing what it does abroad in this country, it would be a crime and in violation of our antitrust laws. the prescription that the council, but several years ago which was very impact will in the energy security independence act of 2007, was it, was based on our port of 2007, which said that the united states should maximize its oil and gas production, that it should significantly reduce consumption and improve conservation, which led to the direct support for the reinstitution of fuel efficiency standards, which has not been done for 20 years. and to develop to the extent it was liable a bio
of the earth. oil that we never dreamed we could access. we need to break the back of on opec. we need to provide for energy security. many nations we buy oil from are antithetical to the american way of democracy and religious freedom. we are fighting our enemies and it could end in the foreseeable future. but there is a second component that should have you steamed. it had me steamed almost as much as my outrage at the fiscal cliff discussion in washington. i had to use the term fiscal cliff. i hadn't used it yet in this piece. i'm talking about the squandered opportunity in natural gas. papa was quite bullish in the price of oil. it's set worldwide. chinese keep it up. we have an umbrella that makes it worth our while to extract hard to get oil. as plentiful as oil is, there is a gigantic glut of natural gas, the opposite of oil, all papas talked about. more nat gas than we know what to do with. we have no place to put it and not enough places to use it. natural gas isn't fungible. it costs fortunes to transport overseas and is barely economical when exported. the best use is in thi
.s. to be north american oil independent. and fundamentally what that means is we won't be relying on opec oil imports by 2020. we're going to rely on canadian imports plus burgeoning u.s. production. that is a major major change in the united states energy picture. >> now mark, one of the things that i've learned from you is that the numbers that we often see are radically understated. the government will put out numbers. it seems like every time they put out numbers they're well behind. what is the disconnect between the numbers that we see officially and what's really going on in the oil patch? and why don't people realize how quickly this change is occurring? >> yes. the dynamic of the change is one that's easy to underestimate. in fact, eog has really underestimated the dynamic of the change. we've raised our production growth forecast for oil three times this year. and that's not because we've been coy with wall street. it's really because we've underappreciated the power of some of these plays. you mentioned earlier for example this eagle ford play, we think that just eog's net of oil d
.13 trillion of our debt. now, this is interesting. out of this debt number three on the list is opec. opec is an entity. that's the countries of ecuador and venezuela and india and bahrain and iran and iraq and kuwait and amman and qatar and saudi arabia and the u.a.e., algeria, ga been a, -- gabon, nigeria. they're now number three on the list and they own $267 billion of our debt. brazil comes in at number four, $250.5 billion. and then number five on the list, new to the list, the top five list, the caribbean banking centers. now own $240.4 billion of u.s. debt. by the way, caribbean banking centers are the bahamas, bermuda, cayman islands, netherlands and panama. this is who owns us. this is who owns our debt. and this is why on this side of the aisle, what we continue to say is the spending has to be dealt with. we have seen -- we've heard from everybody. we are hearing from economists all around the globe. and they repeatedly say what we are saying, what we've been saying for years as week of come to this floor. is that we have a spending problem. the spending has to be dealt with. w
on the throne. her diamond jubilee marked the beginning of britain taking center stage. and at the london opec the queen had a starring role. >> good evening. >> good evening, your majesty. >> reporter: the queen shows little sign of slowing down,y about her oldest grandson now has to choose between his job as a helicopter pilot and becoming a full-time royal. >> the queen at 86, of course, is key for prince william to get more involved in the workings of the royal family. >> reporter: we know prince william will definitely have a new role in 2013. he'll become a dad. whatever the coming year brings for the royals, there will be at least one reason to celebrate. for "today," nbc news, london. >> it has been an amazing year for them. although the james bond image, the first that comes in my mind now. >> oh, from the -- >> whenever i see -- >> the queen. i loved it. it was cute. getting a little bit more life out of him there. fun. >>> up next, from "call me maybe" to "gangnam style" the lo year in social media. first these messages. ♪ ♪ spread a little love my way ♪ spread a little someth
with the opec meeting. in addition to the fed that comes out tomorrow. the expectation is, that opec will leave their current quota unchanged, around 30 million barrels per day. the actual production, around 31 million barrels a day. there may not be any change to that. the key will be what happens in terms of the election of a new secretary-general and saudi arabia in the running for that as well. back to you. >> thanks very much, sharon epperson. i did want to look at shares of largest for-profit hospital in the country. a secondary offering this morning. hga finds itself in the of so many movements of the capital structure, reflective of the 250i78s. don't forget, they borrow at incredibly low rates not long ago, $1 billion, to pay a special dividend. you want to pay a special dividend prior to any tax increase on dividends as well. capital gains figuring into that debate, let's call it at this point that we've been detailing down in d.c. with our "mission critical" coverage. this morning, two of the owners of hca, it was a huge leverage back in '05, and '06, almost four times their money at
two years, around where it is today. that as opec announced today it will not raise the ceiling that it puts on oil exports of 30 million barrs a day and gas prices are still determined by global oil markets. i maintain that mark will see another economic renaissance and in part due to the domestic energy boom. just don't expect prices at the pump to fall anytime soon. if you're sick of slow internet connections at home, listen up. netflix, the on demand home movie provider depends on high speed connections for its customers to watch their movies. now netflix is starting a new series of monthly ratings of internet providers and the service -- the services with the fastest connection will edge google fiber rated number one by netflix. the speeds it says are 16% faster than number two verizon fios. comcast was number three on the list. here is the problem with google fiber. right now it is only available in kansas city, kansas. too bad, virtually nobody lives there. folks across the city in kansas city, missouri are out of luck for now. from the cnn money newsroom in new york, i'm
. the opec nations, what they're doing to us is incredible. and i look at what's going on and all we do is just kick the ball down the road, keep going along. i'd rather go over the cliff and make the big deal. don't forget, we have a very important moment coming up in about a month and that's the debt ceiling. and for those people that don't get it, that think the republicans have no cards, and unfortunately, you know, i'm a republican and i can tell you we have lots of cards. the republican negotiators have lots of cards because we have the debt ceiling coming up. >> juliet: i actually sort of wanted to segueway into that. you mentioned leadership on both sides of the aisle questioning the strength of the leadership. lindsey graham was on fox news yesterday and he said a couple things that were interesting. and one thing, he used the term, the president won. you elaborate more, and you can't take it out of context. what's the feelings about how the republicans have, and since you are a republican, how they have a.c.t.ed and negotiated throughout the course of this entire drama? >> i s
. it required outstanding diplomacy and -- to balance the risks and demands of peace in the sort of opec security environment of the cold war period, which perhaps, perhaps most people to remember but perhaps some do not. so, before turning the program over to marvin though, i would just like to mention, we have a new book that's very pertinent to the subject, the reagan-gorbachev arms control breakthrough, edited by david t. jones, and dedicated to ambassador, the late ambassador maynard whitman, who was the principal inf treaty negotiator and leader of or inf delegation. and copies of this book are available at the baca the room for those of you who would like to purchase one afterwards. so without further a due it's my pleasure, to wish all happy holidays and to turn the program over to marvin. marvin? >> thank you very much, this. it's always a pleasure for me to be asked to come here to moderate a panel. my life has been absolved with the foreign service for an awful long time. though i only work in the foreign service for a year and a half. 1956-seven and moscow. but since that tim
's where crude oil breaks out to the upside. we start to get an upward trend. opec's 2013 target is around $100. i think we'll move up into the mid-90s and probably press through that $100. one of the burdens we have is we do have an abundance of supply in the u.s. the u.s. won't export any crude oil, but i think the possibility of us starting to consume more, would drive and help support those higher prices. >> when you put on those longs, i'm wondering, because this week is a holiday shortened week. congress is coming back on the 27th. is this a trade for 2013? >> yeah, it is more of a trade for 2013. i wiould start to look at fartherer out contracts, to like december 2013, and play the entire year's action, just by being long that one contract. but i would strongly wait until after the beginning of the year, because of the weaker volume, the lack of participants. and i think that the price is really going to shop around. >> nat gas prices taking a step back. what do you see in the immediate future and what is the main catalyst here? the weather seems to be sort of calm. >> yeah. that's
